Omniplex Learning, a provider of learning and development services backed by Lloyds Development Capital (LDC), has acquired Nickelled, a London-headquartered software-as-a-service digital adoption firm.
LDC, which is the mid-market private equity arm of Lloyds Banking Group, invested in Omniplex in January 2021 with the aim of further consolidating the company’s market position, boosting its organic growth and pursuing complementary acquisitions.
Nickelled’s solution will be integrated into Omniplex Learning’s portfolio under the name Omniplex Guide, expanding the company’s suite of digital learning products, which includes authoring tool Articulate 360 and learning management software Docebo.
Matthew Lloyd, chief executive of Omniplex Learning, said: “The need for these solutions has accelerated through the pandemic, with companies increasingly seeking to move more key business elements online and to achieve an ROI on their investment in software and technology.”
LDC partner Aziz Ul-Haq added: “We are continuing to work closely with the management team to further support their plans to provide an increasing breadth of solutions to the e-learning market.”
Omniplex was advised by DWF (legal), Cortus Advisory (financial due diligence), Teneo (commercial due diligence) and RMS (tax).
